Because the weather looks like this.....
.......I don't feel too bad that my 'camp dress' looks like this:
In all honesty, it's further along than this. The bodice is completely constructed and the skirt is attached. I'm 1/2 way through doing all the eyelets (Only 10 more to go), then I need to stitch the skirt panels together and get the skirt hemmed. That would bring it to a wearable state. I'd like to get the sleeves done (I"m still wiffling about how to construct them.....), and the guards on the top of the bodice.
So.....worst case scenario, I wear the black velvet *yet again*, since the weather could possibly warrant a warmer gown.
I'm very *meh* about the whole thing right now.
